The birch burl wood we use comes from the Karelia region, which borders Russia and Finland. Birch burl wood is often found in small pieces and when peeled it gives an almost surrealistic pattern. It was the ruling Tsars’ preferred wood for the imperial furniture. Birch burl wood has a white colour with brown and reddish streaks and burls. The birch burl wood is indeed a very special type of veneer – a bold and beautiful choice, making your turntable a unique piece of art.
